    RV refrigerators have no moving parts to break as they are ammonia based absorption systems. It’s always the electronic controls. Using dinosaur boards solves that problem. There would have to be a leak for an absorption system to quit working and that’s so rare as to not be a concern.

    Well said midnight. In my case, my fridge has a safety check in place. When the propane kicks on, if the igniter doesn't catch the gas right and ignite, the fridge would display a "check" light and shut off. Well, I'd leave for the day, come back and find the fridge shut down. I'd have to manually turn it off and on again. My food would go bad if that happens. I understand it's for safety and to stop propane from leaking.

    With the dinosaur board, the same thing happens. Except, the dinosaur board waits 15 minutes and tries to ignite again. It keeps trying every 15 minutes, until the gas ignites. I don't have to check on the fridge or worry about my food going bad, the dinosaur board does the work for me. Works great. My fridge has run non stop with that board for about 5 years.

    If I ever buy a new RV, the first thing I'd do is replace the fridge board and upgrade to the dinosaur.
    life is good.

    Are the dinosaur boards more reasonably priced than the originals?

    I found a parts dealer online that has some of their boards. They are priced at $99. I bought mine through a local RV parts shop, I remember paying about that price as well.
